2011-2012 Book Lists

 

'Reading,' by Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1875-1876)

My proposed book lists for the 2011-2012 school year:

English 8

Lord of the Flies (Summer Reading)
D’Aulaire’s Book of Greek Mythology
The Burial at Thebes (Seamus Heaney’s translation of Antigone)
Romeo and Juliet (Folger Library Edition)
The Tempest (Folger Library Edition)
Poetry: A Pocket Anthology
A Short Guide to Writing about Literature

English 8 Enrichment

Lord of the Flies (Summer Reading)
Shakespeare: The World as Stage (Summer Reading)
D’Aulaire’s Book of Greek Mythology
The Burial at Thebes
Romeo and Juliet (Folger Library Edition)
The Tempest (Folger Library Edition)

There’s less fat, more Shakespeare, and no drivel.
